March 30, 1997|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Sophomore attackman John Chescavage scored four goals to lead Penn State to an 11-5 win last night over No. 17 UMBC at UMBC Stadium.

The Nittany Lions (3-3) never trailed, taking a 4-0 lead before Jeffrey Radcliffe scored for the Retrievers 21 minutes into the game. The Lions led 6-3 at halftime.

The Retrievers (4-2) had a chance to seize momentum early in the second half when Tim Moltisanti fired a close-in shot, but goaltender Kevin Keenan made the save and started a fast break that resulted in a Chescavage score 39 seconds into the half.

Chescavage scored consecutive goals midway through the third period to improve the lead to 10-4, and UMBC did not threaten again.

Keenan made 14 saves.

Freshman attackman Dan Marohl led UMBC with two goals. Sophomore goaltender Andrew Hampson stopped 16 shots.
